Wisconsin Poker Laws

Unfortunately according to the Wisconsin gambling laws a bet is "bargain in which the parties agree that, dependent upon chance even though accompanied by some skill, one stands to win or lose something of value specified in the agreement", that will rule poker illegal unless you can convince the judge that poker is a "bona fide contest for the determination of skill".  If you are convicted of illegal gambling you will be charged with a class 2 misdemeanor.  If this is your first conviction, the maximum charge will be 90 days and a maximum $1000 fine.
